We made it over east this year for Melbourne International Games Week (MIGW) - not a small achievement for a tiny indie outfit from Western Australia. At times we both felt a little overwhelmed.

We'll be fixing this for all print copies of Banishment as well, for both Kickstarter backers and new customers. Keep an eye on this space for further updates.
Our shipment of Banishment has arrived, and we're in the midst of shipping Kickstarter rewards out to all our backers. International backers are being given highest priority due to longer shipping times, but we expect to have sent them all out by the end of next week. Get ready!
In other news, our local Perth launch event is on tonight at Quenda Games. We'll be handing out copies to Kickstarter backers who arrive, and playing as many rounds of Banishment as we can.
Hope to see you all there!
Banishment stock is about to arrive, and we're celebrating with an official launch on Friday August 25. Local Kickstarter backers can come along to pick up their copy of the game before we mail them out, and all are welcome to come along for a friendly chat, play a few rounds of Banishment and have fun!
Venue: Quenda Games, 31 Victoria St, Midland WA, Australia
Time: 7pm - 10pm
The event details are also up on Facebook.
With the resounding success of the Banishment Kickstarter (it reached over 400% of its original funding goal), we've been busy producing the final game. The image above shows our final prototype - this is what the finished product should look like.
The printable digital PDF rewards have just been sent out to Kickstarter backers, and the print versions are currently in production. We can't wait for the print copies to arrive!
